Save On Routine Treatment - Teeth & Vaccination
Did you know that we offer a saving if your horse has routine dental work performed at the same time as their vaccination? Even better value when combined with a Zone Visit. Call us to find out more.

 

 

 

Worming Programme Package
There are so many different types of wormer available it can be very confusing to decide when and which one is right for your horse. That is why we offer an annual worming package for £37 which provides worm egg counts and advice from your vet about when and what to use dependent on the results. Tapeworm testing is not included in the package. Worm egg counts are a great way to prevent un-necessary worming and help reduce the chance of wormer resistance. 

 

FREE ACTH Blood Tests Throughout 2018
This offer is now extended until the end of 2018. PPID is a hormonal disease caused by changes in the pituitary gland. Horses not previously tested are eligible. Log on to www.talkaboutlaminitis.co.uk to download your voucher and call us to arrange a blood test.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Winter Health Checks
Milbourn Equine can offer a winter health check for your horse.  This covers a full clinical examination of heart, lungs, skin, eyes and action, a blood sample is taken to test your horse’s internal organs and a faecal sample is also taken and tested for worms. Whilst there, the vet can also take a look inside your horse’s mouth and check to see if any dental work is needed. 
This is also a great opportunity to discuss any queries you have about your horse’s health or performance. 
Our winter health checks are especially useful if you have a veteran horse who may struggle with the changing weather and are also advisable for competition horses to resolve any issues quickly and ensure they are in peak condition ready for the competition season ahead. 
Only £97.50 including VAT, call now to book an appointment. More details

Gastroscope Clinics

 

Gastric ulceration are very common, recent studies have shown up to 98% of racehorses and up to 53% of leisure horses are affected.
Symptoms are often vague and can include:

Poor performance
Changes in behaviour or grumpy temperament
Picky appetite
Weight loss/ failure to maintain condition
Colic
Girthing pain or resistance to girthing
Resistance to riding aids
Poor coat condition

Once diagnosed gastric ulcers can be treated quickly and effectively with medication and horses usually return to their former level of performance. Milbourn Equine offer monthly gastroscope clinics at Ashford and Benenden, where you can book in to bring your horse along for a gastroscope at a reduced price.
Please remember to bring your horse's bridle with you when bringing your horse to the clinic.
Scoping in your yard is also available by appointment – please ring for details
